Happy New Years to all my readers and friends! Sorry if I haven’t been posting pretty much at all these days, been really busy with actual affiliate marketing stuff so haven’t had time to blog.
One of the key routes potential customers can take to find your business web site and ultimately your ebook(s) is via the search engines and an effective domain name can play a large part in convincing them to click on the search results that lead to your site.
A domain is your web site’s address on the Internet. Imagine the confusion if all the major high street stores didn’t have names or addresses, how would you find them or know what they sold for that matter. Just like a bricks and mortar store, your web site needs a name or a brand, a domain name that allows people to identify what you do and makes it easy for them to remember where to go next time they want to visit.
A company that produces videos for online use should provide you with a quick “how to” for video marketing in order to make more money online. Using a video will not benefit you if you will not use it correctly or if it drives away clients instead of attracting them. Not only is this a great marketing tool, but is guaranteed to make money online for your business and yourself in the long run. The more people watch your videos, the more brand exposure and clients you will attract!
Any quick “how to” for video marketing should include not just the way to use your video but tips on creating the best video for you. When considering using video marketing you must remember who your audience is and how to get their attention. If you create and use a video that is noisy and loud on a site for yoga products, customers will probably be driven away. On the other hand, if you’re selling skateboards to children, of course your video should have all that energy and enthusiasm…
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, or at least very primitively for the last couple of years, I’m pretty sure you know what an online store is and how people make money online with one. If you’ve shopped online for any item, whether it be a physical item or an intangible(or one you can download that you cannot touch physically) one, then chances are, you were shopping at someone’s online store. While they look and act like a basic ‘web site’ there is one distinct difference between the two: ‘an online store has one main job. . .to sell products and make money online for the owner…
The real duds are easy enough to spot without research. There are still tedious, verbose, non-delivering “affiliates” that aren’t and never will be worth a click. There are fizzy, bubbly, and staggeringly non-specific “affiliate offers” that still rope in the naïve and trusting. An unbiased review from a gorilla in New Jersey and someone living in a tree in Uruguay are still for some reason seen as the best way to get people to sign up for an affiliate program.
Another species of dud uses 1990s copy for a sedative effect. This fabulous new product cured my acne and made me Czar of all the Russias… Then I discovered the Fountain of Youth on the Deluxe Plan… about 2000 words, and if the reader isn’t killed outright by boredom or horror, they’re in no condition to argue by the time they hit the signup part. Some people are believed to sign up in self defence.
Of course, you will also have to set up a Google AdWords account, where you can set your daily budget as well as the maximum CPC you are willing to pay for each keyword. Once your daily budget has been met, Google will simply stop showing your ad for the remainder of the day.
This is why there are many who advocate that it is better to set a lower CPC rather than lowering your budget because it’s better to be shown on the eighth position of the list for the whole day rather than the second position for part of the day. There are also some statistics that show ads in lower positions tend to generate more sales and convert better.
eBay was the place to be a couple years ago! People were becoming super rich reselling products and making insane amounts of money. I don’t know what it was back then, but people simply were willing to pay lot more money on eBay than in stores! I remember back in the good days that I could go to a store, buy a t shirt, some name brand ofcourse, and relist it on eBay and make a few bucks!
Back when I was first starting with making money online, that is exactly what I did! But this post isn’t about the past and for good reason too, since eBay has become the place NOT to go for selling stuff online these days. They have been treating sellers horrible, and with the route their heading in, only time will tell how many more sellers and powersellers they will be losing.
I usually don’t write posts like this, but I had a pretty bad experience with Wiredtree and it really pissed me off so here I go with my rant! (Don’t worry, no affiliate links for Wiredtree in this one!) I was looking for a VPS, separate from the one I use for my blog, so I can host my tracker on for my affiliate campaigns. After reading a few reviews here and there, getting a few recommendations etc, I decided to go with Wiredtree and their VPS package.
Hmm, 99.9 percent uptime guarantee, nice specs, sure why not! Much better than shared hosting especially when your hosting all of your affiliate campaigns and your main source of income is from them! J Anyways, so I spend a few days setting up campaigns and migrating from my smaller vps to this bigger and faster one with Litespeed, when one day I try to login to my tracker and guess what!? The site was down.
